Musee des Automates, Limoux

#7 of 13 in Things to do in Limoux
Gain a new appreciation for uncanny automation at Musee des Automates, a museum featuring about 250 automatic puppets, nearly all created in the site's workshop. Don't be alarmed when these puppets start moving--they are designed to. The owner of the museum creates each item in a workshop, which you can usually tour if you ask. Explore seven rooms of animated puppets and objects made of metal, wood, and paper dating from the 19th century.
